Not a bad weekend at all for the Kitchener Rangers. The offence is rolling now with 16 goals in the past three wins over - Oshawa (6-2), Sarnia (5-3) and Kingston (5-2) last night at the Aud.
It was a young lineup for the Rangers. Both overage forwards Domenica Alberga and Nick Czinder sat this one out as a healthy scratch. Both players were upset but understood the decision.
Coach/GM Steve Spott made it clear after the game - perform well and you'll play, if not, to the pressbox you go.
Ryan Murphy (eight points, three games) and Tobi Rieder (eight points) were named finalists for OHL player of the week.
Guelph's Hunter Garlent won, after potting three goals and adding five assists. The Storm also won three games in three days, like the Rangers.
Ex-Rangers centre Andrew Crescenzi was at Sunday's game.
The potential OHL overager was cut by the AHL's Toronto Marlies and was supposed to go to the ECHL's Fort Wayne Komets but there is no room for him on the roster.
At last check the Toronto Maple Leafs' prospect is still without a team.
Earlier this season, the Leafs said they did not want him coming back to junior and that he needed to play against men in order to develop properly.
Rangers GM/coach Steve Spott hasn't heard anything about him coming back to junior and said that decision is in the Leafs' hands.
I contacted Crescenzi's agent but have not heard back yet. Will update if there is any news.
